I don't think any nearly 20 year old dispute with multiple court hearings can be easily or quickly explained.

That the Mohonk Preserve and their associated organizations have lost every single land dispute with Fink/Pardini over the last twenty years is a quick and factual explanation.

I must confess that had I been more passionate about the issue, I would have soldiered through the article. I wonder how many of us read it through and how many quit for the same reason I did.

hey Phlegm! Don't thank gunks.com....Thank the Mohonk Preserve. I've been thanking them for years and I'm hysterical laughing! BTW, what's your day job? Hanging out on gunks.com and posting Phlegm?

Judging by your 5877 posts on Gunks.com i find your excuse for not reading the whole article a bunch of BS. If your not interested in the issue why bother commenting at all?

The article is also published in Chronogram, which is a very well respected, and award winning, local magazine of arts and culture.

But still, go ahead and slay the messenger all you like. The facts remain the same. Mohonk et al have lost against Fink and Pardini as they have been doing for the last 20 years. Anyone who thinks Mohonk's conduct vis a vis their neighbors is respectful is in willful denial.

Here is the full text of the decision in Mohonk v Pardini/Fink. It's truly interesting -- a history lesson on ownership of that portion of the ridge.

The story I would love to tell is the story of the land itself, nut just this lawsuit. Who were these people and what was it like to live here?

Seth I looked at your blog. It's well written. I can't vouch for you actually having climbed the routes you brag about since your assertions are unsourced and the blog is written by you.

True enough that has been the outcome. I was talking about understanding the various lawsuits and court proceedings and why it has dragged on for 20 years.
